IntersACTION - "TD Bank, Stop Funding Climate Change!"

September began with thousands marching in the streets of Vancouver, saying loud and clear, “Kinder Morgan, We Still Say NO!” However, the oil giant is still threatening to start construction of its pipeline despite an obvious lack of permission from indigenous nations and government permits. 

Meanwhile TD Bank is the largest investor in the pipeline with $731 million committed. This same bank also claims, “Protecting and enhancing the environment is our commitment”. How does funding this dirty Tar Sands pipeline protect or enhance the environment?

We need to keep up the momentum against the Kinder Morgan pipeline and hold TD Bank accountable for its major role in trying to enable this climate disaster! 

>>> What is an IntersAction?
It's an action where we flood an intersection on all sides with people crossing (on the light) with signs and banners without stopping the flow of traffic. This way we can be seen by and engage with the most people. We also set up an information table and engage in public education about the climate justice movement and how to build a sustainable world. 

This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

The 6.8 billion dollar pipeline would “twin” an already existing pipeline to move heavy tar sands oil from Edmonton to Burnaby for export. This would triple the amount of oil being moved on the route to 890,000 barrels a day, while crossing approximately 900 watercourses between Edmonton and Burnaby. The pipeline would increase oil tanker traffic in the Burrard Inlet from 60 to more than 400 a year. It is opposed by the vast majority of indigenous nations whose traditional territories it would cross and millions more accross BC and Canada.
